Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: a proposed new SDH-friendly rating system

I have to say that this is a fine system you've come up with and one I would fully support.

I also agree that the rating system we have is flawed, but I truly believe that no matter how you tweaked it, you'd never please everyone. How one person sees a show can be so different from someone else that rating it should really be for personal use only. Yes, there are a few regular reviewers that I usually agree with, but not always. When I rate a show I tend to go with the more emotional reaction, less so the more technical aspects, i.e. was Jerry's voice too ragged, was Keith's playing too flat, were Donna's contributions a violation of just about every ASPCA standard? Nah, I look at a show and will ask myself how many moments were there that shook my inner being; the more moments there were like that and how long those moments lasted the more likely it is that I'll give a show more stars. Also, we have the differences in what prompts someone to take the time to write a review. For me, it is almost always only when a show has stood out and I feel should be at least be sampled by others. If I come across a show that leaves me flat from start to finish, I rarely will take the time to give it a review. Others however don't seem to have that issue, freely taking the time to bash shows as soon as praise them. For me there a few regular reviewers whose taste I have come to see as being fairly close to my own and if I see a show that they have rated particularly highly, there's a good chance I'll take the time to give it a listen.

Also, I guess I should also point out that this may be the very first time the phrase "SDH-friendly" has been used. I guess I should now get ready for the potential listings of other things that can be rated as "SDH-friendly"...the first person who says "randy livestock" is off my Christmas list.

Warning: Don't try that at work. Apparently pulling up bestiality sites is grounds for termination. Some folks are way too touchy.

Oh don't worry about that. My boss only lets me watch artificial insemination bestiality videos. Look, theres DIRE again.

And the only folk that I know who was way too touchy was
my uncle. He Taught me all I know. Taught me so well,
that I left his dead ass there by the side of the road.

Yes, the PITB is great -- and I think I'm hearing the Raven space of a few days later getting birthed there. That whole second set is quite good, IMO, except for the vocals which are in the "don't play these for non-Deadheads" category.

In the Cool Moment department: As the drumz played, a Hindu priest started chanting at the house next door, so the drums made an amazing backdrop. Play them the next time you have a priest around to chant.
